About the Organisation

As Outdoor People, we build community around the idea that going outdoors everyday is as important as getting a good night’s sleep, especially for children and families. We are a Social Enterprise, matching surplus from contracts and sales with grants to support our Outdoor Families programmes. Recognising that adults are the gatekeepers to children experiences, we work with the whole family, so together they: – enjoy the outdoors and create shared memories – build up their skills and confidence to go outside regularly, visiting green spaces in their community – feel they can go on bigger adventures, with the kit and knowledge needed to go camping, with their family or with friends. We are about to move to a new community shop in the centre of town with a cafe attached.
